Talking Upgrades inhand & not yet installed?

As for me: Due to arrive UPS 12/29

1. Rear aux lites to go in my Rampage Recovery Bumper (yea, gotta remove the bumper to install, but not a big-deal) Will hook up to my sPOD

2. CB radio (simply for Jeep-2-Jeep comm off road)

3. Rear splash guards (already have the front)

On the future list:

1. Windshield lites
2. MORE dead-man pedal
3. Who the heck knows

Finally: RETIREMENT the last day of Feb 2012 (2-mo away)

What about U folks?????

just this afternoon I installed the Hella H4 headlight upgrade from Rallylights and piaa sport horn. WOW to both over stock...
Tried to mount MORE windshield mounts (for Rigid D2 driving lights) and didn't have a ball-end torx driver so I couldn't tighten the upper bolt. Order placed on amazon to be here Friday.
sPod shipped yesterday so should be here by the weekend.
Quadratec cargo liner shipped yesterday - will match the front mats Santa dropped off.
Just ordered the MORE Dead pedal after seeing another thread about it and deciding it may help raise the comfort factor a bit.

I think that's it until:
Future front bumper of some sort
Rigid amber LED bar on said bumper
Thinking Hanson for the bumper and maybe their rock sliders too. I like the ACE but I think the Hanson will act as a splash guard and help keep the sides/doors from getting scarred up.

Hi! Which bulbs did you get on your H4 kit? I got the Hella +50 on order and their 5-7 days backlog on making the harnesses. :-(

I got the Osram Hyper 85/80. I don't have anything to compare them to but I know they are going to burn out so I'm pondering what to order as a replacement.

Oh! if you have a 2012 you'll need to zip-tie the harness H13 trigger plug to the factory plug. It doesn't "CLICK' in place. No biggie though

Good
1. Got my rear aux lies installed today & they work fine using my sPOD

Bad
1. Returned the rear-splash gards (don't work w/aftermarket bumpers)
2. Returned the CB radio antenna-kit that attaches to the spare-tire carrier (cable was about 4+ft to short)

New: Ordered the "UltraMount" CB antenna kit tonight

Guess we'll keep plugging away at the MOD's. Gotta have her ready for retirement (last day of Feb)
